FBL Financial Group, Inc. (FFG) is poised to appreciate at least 15% in the near future. The stock currently trades 12% below book value and management has the determination and resources to repurchase shares and raise dividends until they trade above book value. Future book value increases are also evident and so at least a 15% return in the next year is in my opinion, very likely. The company is finally starting to get some recognition from Wall Street and I think that will catalyze further price appreciation soon as institutional investors scour for value in an overvalued market. If you're a retail investor looking for a quick 15%, buy this stock now before the Street does.
